Chapter 5 verse 111

Jesus عليه السلام protected From persecution?


When Allah will say, “O Jesus, son of Mary, remember My favour upon thee and upon thy mother; when I strengthened thee with the Spirit of holiness so that thou didst speak to the people in the cradle and in middle age; and when I taught thee the Book and Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and when thou didst fashion a creation out of clay, in the likeness of a bird, by My command; then thou didst breathe into it a new spirit and it became a soaring being by My command; and thou didst heal the night-blind and the leprous by My command; and when thou didst raise the dead by My command; and when I restrained the children of Israel from putting thee to death when thou didst come to them with clear Signs; and those who disbelieved from among them said, ‘This is nothing but clear deception.’ (Chapter 5 Verse 111)


The non Ahmadis try to quote this ayah to state that the word kafafu refers to the opponents touching Jesus(as) and could not put him on the cross however this is totally basis as well.  In the Qur’an Allah has stated in regards to the Believers in Chapter 5 verse 12:



“O ye who believe! remember Allah’s favour upon you when a people intended to stretch out their hands against you, but He withheld their hands from you; and fear Allah. And on Allah should the believers rely” (Chapter 5 Verse 12)


In this verse Allah has used kaffa aiydiyahum which refers to “He withheld their hands from you” but its clear that there are many incidents of the lifetime of the Prophet(saw) where he was even wounded and injured many times. The word kaffa’an refers to Allah not letting the enemies of the Prophet’s plans succeed rather it is always Allah who’s plans are the best as He is Indeed the Best of Planners. This ayah was also misinterpreted by the non Ahmadi Muslims. It is an accepted fact that Isa(as) was put on the cross and no Ayah says otherwise. He was however not killed nor crucified which has shown that he did indeed succeed over his enemies and ended up as another prophet who was successful as they all are.


Again in chapter 5 verse 68 Allah has stated:


“O Messenger! convey to the people what has been revealed to thee from thy Lord; and if thou do it not, thou hast not conveyed His Message at all. And Allah will protect thee from men. Surely, Allah guides not the disbelieving people.” (Chapter 5 Verse 68)


This ayah as well guarantees that The Prophet(saw) would be protected from the evil men and Allah did indeed protect him but this does not mean the prophet would not be persecuted in any way whatsoever and is a total misconception.
